Eczema and Psoriasis treatment at The Salt Cave
Kiaan has suffered with eczema since he was a baby and the medication prescribed by our GP just didn't seem to work. After just three sessions in The Salt Cave we noticed the difference in Kiaan's eczema and after just seven sessions the condition had completely cleared up. Both Kiaan and myself are extremely grateful to the staff at The Salt Cave and would highly recommend this as an alternative treatment for anyone with eczema conditions. - Emma, London, July 2017
Inside the body, salt therapy helps to lower the IgE level, a measure of antibodies which is often high in people with allergies. Salt therapy helps to lower this level.
On the outside of the body, it can reduce inflammation on the skin and improve circulation on the skin surface.
In the UK, one in 12 adults has the dry skin condition eczema while eczema and contact dermatitis account for 84-90% of occupational skin disease. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms, but is not contagious. In mild cases, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and leaves it open to infection.
Psoriasis is similar to eczema and affects around 2% of people in the UK. It can start at any age, but most often develops in adults under 35 years old. When a person has psoriasis, their skin replacement process speeds up, taking just a few days to replace skin cells that usually take 21-28 days. This abundance of skin cells builds up to form raised ‘plaques’ on the skin.
The course of treatment at the salt cave resulted in a great reduction in asthma and eczema related symptoms for me. Also, it is a very relaxing environment. The Salt Cave is well run and staff were friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this to other people.
